Samsung has announced a partnership with Google to allow Nest devices, including thermostats, cameras and doorbells, to integrate with SmartThings. Users can now control both Nest & Samsung devices through the SmartThings platform.
On top of the usual controls and functionalities, SmartThings users can also incorporate Nest devices into their current WWST-certified devices to create Scenes and automated experiences, controlling the functions with simple voice commands or through the SmartThings app. Soon, users will be able to stream right from their Nest devices directly to their Samsung TV or Family Hub fridge.
“SmartThings technology continues to enhance and improve the way we experience smart living. We’re pleased to further strengthen our partnership with Google and integrate Nest into our portfolio to offer users more ways to control and automate their home,” said Ralf Elias, Global Vice President IoT / Business Development & Partnerships at Samsung Electronics. “We are committed to creating a universal system where all smart home devices can work cohesively together.”
The integration is expected to be available to users from January 2021.
